Don't Take Me Seriously, the new EP from Orlando's FLASHLIGHTS, is unquestionably appropriately named: The poppy, punky four-piece, consisting of singer/guitarist Terry Caudill, Tony Oriza on guitar, Will Powell on bass, and Melissa Hopkins on drums all have a strange affinity for both cats and Pokémon. Carefully crafting a sound more befitting a band born in the mid-90's melodic punk scene (calling on Archers of Loaf and Superchunk as influences) the band has honed their superior sound and stage presence in the clubs of Florida the past few years. With the announcement of their signing to Hard Rock Records and release of their digital EP, Don't Take Me Seriously, the band plans to release their debut album Bummer Summer in early 2014, so keep an eye out for tour dates including CMJ this Fall and cat videos!
